Council of Examiners


The role of the COE is to manage the writing team that develops the CFA exams using the candidate curriculum. The CFA exams measure whether candidates have sufficiently mastered the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for success in the investment industry.

The COE oversees three writing teams:

  • Level I Team
  • Item Set Team (IST)
  • Essay Team (ET)

Potential writers are identified through participation in CFA Program activities such as curriculum review and development, standard setting, grading, or exam review.

Current Members
